One has to question if the Cabal really wants the rest of the world to develop. Or is it more interested in keeping the supply of natural resources available and cheap for itself? The answer may seem more obvious when one realizes that the US alone, while having only 5% of the world's population, uses 20% of the world's oil.

Then there is the world competition for other natural resources such as coal, uranium, wood, agricultural products, fish, meat, aluminum, copper, iron, tin, and all strategic materials, metals and minerals. Even fresh water is a serious problem for many parts of the world and the situation is going to get much worse.

The US and the rest of the developed world are in a scramble to compete for all natural resources. The US corporations and global corporations, many of whom are the same, are also in a scramble for foreign markets and profits. That requires extracting natural resources and turning them into value-added products to sell to world markets. Too much competition from too many players will hurt their profits.

Historically capitalism, globalization and wealth-creation required plenty of cheap labor. Britain and America build the wealth of their nations on plentiful raw materials, cheap labor and African slaves.

Economic development and democracy depends on a large middle-class. A strong middle-class requires skilled manufacturing jobs, adding value to raw materials, and an educated and healthy workforce, and good paying jobs. That is called trickle-up economics and it is what builds the real wealth of nations.
